by refusing to raise the debt ceiling, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house over

reminiscent of what george h.w. bush did. health and mental records. these powers are within the presidency, also to put somebody standard head of the a.t.f., and a lot of funding for the a.t.f., which is a lagging agency. they'll be charged with enforcing these gun laws. by strengthening the a.t.f., he is going to be doing some strengthening. >> cenk: when you block over countries from importing more guns here, it helps the n.r.a., because they represent american gun manufacturers, gives them a bigger monopoly. the check on mental health, if that's the only thing they do, that was an n.r.a. proposal, too. it's not nearly good enough. that's not the only thing they are proposing, and i want to be clear on that. if they settle, it sucks. >> that's the important thing to extinguish. it's not the only thing they are proposing, but the only thing george h.w. bush did on guns a transparent way of saying we are helping american gun manufacturers. this is the sail time as you're trying to fight guns here, fighting guns coming from overseas. rand paul in the is that the the senate is against this,

to war in iraq, that is the original sin of the george w. bush era in america. but it does not mean that they cooked up all that fake and misleading intelligence all by themselves. some of it came from enemies of saddam and iraqi exiles and expats who shoved it to the u.s., knowing it was false, but hoping we would nevertheless fall for it because they wanted us to invade. that recent history of the u.s. and how we get into wars these days looms large. it looks large particularly on days like this when we see bombshell headlines like this one. our friend josh rogin at foreign policy tonight reporting that someone inside the obama administration says that he or she has seen a cable that if the information in that cable is true would be a very scary thing. the headline, as you can see there, "chemical weapons used in syria." chemical weapons used. nobody is known to have used chemical weapons in 25 years. we know syria has them. but have they used them in their civil war? because that really would change everything. but look back at that headline again. the part before the part that w

should not read their own press. there are always going be to be critics and i remember george w. bush did not spend a lot of times reading the nasty things that people said about him. he would say, look, this is where i think we need to go, this is a policy and help me get there. and he would try to bring in people from the other side to get that done. that wasn't always possible and people didn't always agree with him, but that was a bert approach and got more done because of it. >> that kind of pushing away, that kind of aggressive approach to the republicans, it's having an impact. there are consequences to this. fitch, the rating agency, is now warning about a downgrade. when the president says i'm not going to negotiate, that implies, well, we may not get a deal of any kind on the debt ceiling. it's pushing them away and fitch says, watch out, here comes a downgrade. this is entirely possible with very serious consequences. >> sean: he could use the kids tomorrow as he announces executive orders as props. >> exploit them. >> sean: exploit them, i agree, that's the right term. int
